Re: Pro - Whats the difference?

I did have three top business accounts but when they got rate limited i left. Also why does it cost plusnet so much to put the 832kbps on when my other ISP gives me 8128kbps down and 832kbps up for just £30 with 20GB of included bandwith.

832kb upstream is available on PlusNet's business packages;

But that is £41.11 inc VAT

No, that's acceptable use of a quote  Smiley
But sorry, I don't know the answer to your question, more than the old premier.

See here where Ian has said he can add 832kbps upload to your account for £10pcm, bringing BBYW 3 with bolt-on Max Premium in at one penny under the account cost of your other ISP, and free usage overnight.

Unfortunatly Plus Net do not offer MLPPP and in todays market there is still a massive jump in price between max premium and SDSL and Leased Lines. Therefore MLPPP fills this gap.
I think that 13600kbps down and 1300kbps up is quite good for a shade under £55! Oh and a handfull of the best peers means that pings are always between 12-16ms.
They also have 10pm - 10am offpeak.
It might be worth a thought to consider MLPPP here at PN Roll eyes.
I would not come back but it might reel in a lot of customers!

Re: Pro - Whats the difference?

Just for anyone else confused by `MLPPP` its otherwise known as bonded ADSL.
Where two (or more) ADSL connections are joined to form a single connection. Like the old 128kb ISDN.
Personally I don't think that £55 per month is too bad.

Re: Pro - Whats the difference?

maybe not but most LLU providers can do more than that for half the price
granted you need to be able to get it..

Re: Pro - Whats the difference?

Most LLU providers say that there speeds are higher than that but then you get contended. Also BEtheres transits don't look nice to me.
LLU lines also can take longer to repair because they often have longer ETA's than BTw.
It also is not effected by peak times at the ISP end.
Here is an example:

Re: Pro - Whats the difference?

Hi,
We're currently looking into ways of offering Max Premium to our residential customers.  In the meantime I'll be happy to add this manually for someone at a quarterly (currently undecided) costs.
If there are people interested in this then I'll definitely be happy to see what I can do.
